Travel Folder

Hi everyone!  I have a simple project to show you today that I made to keep all my travel info together for my recent trip to CHA in California.

To make my little folder I cut a piece of cardstock to 12"h x 9"w
Using my score board,  I scored at 4-1/2" (along the 9" side) and then turned my paper and scored a 8-3/4".

I folded up the botton flap to create little pockets and adhered them down with red tacky tap on the outside edge.

I adhered a piece of Poppy Double Faced satin ribbon and then a piece of pattern paper (8-1/4 x 4") on the front and back cover.    I folded up my flight itenerary, hotel confirmation and a list of contact info and put them in the pockets. 

I tied a little bow and added a sticker from Echo Park - For the Record.  This kept everything together in my purse and looked really pretty, too!

Best of Gnomies!

Happy Monday everyone! It's Emily here from Create Serendipity sharing a new little project with you today. Well, it's new for me! I usually do mini albums, but I have started to venture off into home decor projects.

A few weeks ago my husband went down to the river and got a truck load full of driftwood. Now I usually look around the house to find things to alter but rarely go out into nature and find things. This wood is so cool! There are so many different shapes and sizes and textures! Of coarse I cleaned it up really nice before putting my pretty paper & ribbons on it, but I decided to make a little wall hanging out of this little one. I've had this cute little gnome stamp set for a while and thought they would go perfect on this project!

The pretty ribbons that I used on this one are Satin/Grosgrain Double Band Yellow, Satin/Grosgrain Double Band Teal, Satin/Grosgrain Double Band Fuchsia, Torrid Orange Grosgrain

Thanks for stopping by today! Hopefully I have inspired you to go out into nature and find something cool to add pretty ribbons to! Well, of coarse, if you aren't covered in snow ;-)

♥ Emily

♥Sweetheart layout♥

Hello everyone, Cheryl here with my post today for Really Reasonable Ribbon, using all beautiful ribbons from the RRR Store on my Scrapbook page.

I was going to share a photo album I had started prior to my surgery on Thursday, which by the way went well from what my hubby said. :) I'm still in pain, but I'm sure that will go away soon.
♥So instead I made flowers in bed and then did my layout. Hubby took the pictures for me, thank you Jerry!!!♥ 
I love the look of the leaves wrapped around the flowers.  It's super easy to do, and gives my paper flowers some leaves:)
So I used 3 ribbons for the border across my page and then I used the green leaves for around my handmade paper flowers. 
♥Supplies Used♥
Satin Pink Ribbon tied into knots
My SWEETHEART flowers are cut out with Cottage Cutz Sweetheart flower cottage cutz,  I Love making my own paper flowers.  In the centers of all my flowers is some Martha Stewart glitter that I bought about 4 years back. 
Design paper is MyLittle Shoebox

Thank you for looking and hope you all have a lovely day!

Magnetic Memo Holder

Hello Really Reasonable Ribbon fans!  Jan here to share a Magnetic Memo Holder and a flower tutorial.  I used Red Satin Ribbon, Black Crocheted Lace and Random Hearts Red Cossgrain

Here are the flowers.

The white fabric came from a Dollar Store and was a pillow cover.  I used Tattered florals die to cut the white flowers.
Red and White flower.
Cut 2 large and one medium flower, I used my Accucut Die Cut machine.
Cut a 12" piece of red satin ribbon and use the gathering stitch on one side.
Set aside.
I used the red ribbon in the Club Assortment (the one with small hearts on one side.)  Using the back of the ribbon, cut three 2" pieces.

Apply Quick Dry Glue to the center of the large flower.
cross ribbon and adhere the second large flower.
Using Quick Dry Adhesive, add a pearl to the center of the gathered satin ribbon.
Add a piece of magnet to the back of the flower.

Do You Remember Weaving As A Child?

Well of course you remember doing this simple basket weave with paper when you were little?
I just decided to do a  project with ribbons from Really Reasonable Ribbon of course. I finished a mini album and wanted a special cover to make it pretty.
 Isn't this so soft and delicate looking?
I used the following ribbons
 After weaving and fitting to the cover I adorned with a yummy double bow I made with my favorite
Loved accenting with those pearls and one small and sparkly flower.
Here is an angled view of the accordion album.
If you would like to see all the inside-there is more pictures available on my blog.
Thanks for stopping

Scrapping with Ribbon

You have probably all figured out by now that I am not much of a card maker. 
I will make them...just not often.
It is just not one of my favorite things to do.
I do, however, LOVE to make hair accessories, altered items and most especially...scrapbook layouts. 

For this layout, I used a sketch from My Creative Sketches.
Here is the sketch that I used:

Now...I LOVE to scrap with circles, but I was a little bit wary of the large strip behind the circle that is on a slant.  I was clueless as to what to do! 
I saw my beautiful moss green leaf vine ribbon!
I immediately thought of a rose trellis, and then I was scrappin'!
I used the Estelle White crochet lace to run around the edge of the circle.

Here is a close up of both trims that I used on this layout:

Next time you are stuck on a layout, take a peek into your ribbon stash!
It just might help your imagination wander!  
Ribbon is a PERFECT final touch to ANY project!

Thank you for visiting today!  
Have a Fantastic Week!!!

Quick Shabby Flower

Today I want to share a quick way to make a shabby fabric flower. I LOVE all sorts of flowers on cards and this was a fun one to use one of my favorite ribbons: 1 1/2" Black Gingham.

Start with about a foot of your chosen ribbon.

Fold in half and glue the edge with a hot glue gun.

Cut halfway into the fold about every 1/4" or so.

Start rolling your flower, hot gluing as you go.


I added a brad for a flower center and also used Black Licorice Baker's Twine.
Thanks for taking a peek!
